The objective of the League is to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn both the fundamentals of youth football or cheerleading in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety, and the importance of education, in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and character. Additionally, the Junior GAC Youth Football League will inspire youth to practice the ideals of good sportsmanship, scholarship and personal integrity. Along with these ideals, the league instills upon its member clubs, players, cheerleaders, coaches and parents that winning is secondary to the ideals set forth in these by-laws.
To achieve this objective, the League will provide a supervised youth football program under the rules and regulations of Missouri State High School Athletic Associations (MSHSAA) and specific league rules and policies. In accordance with Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, the Junior GAC Youth Football League shall operate exclusively as a nonprofit organization, providing a supervised program of competitive football games and cheer between member organizations.
